Wednesday, February 22, 2017 Tyler Tribute - Page 11 i In the face of outbreaks of flu strep throat, Avera doctors urge people to take precautions We're facing a tough winter for flu and other illness bugs. Health care professionals are remind- ing us all to fight back with prevention. The current flu season is indeed bleak; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently re- ported that the threshold that indicates epidemic was reached earlier in January. More than 4,300 lab-confirmed cases of flu hospitalization have been report- ed nation- ally this year, compared to about 2,600 last year. Minnesota doctors are seeing the flu, but also many cases of strop throat, norovirus and common colds. The flu hits the young, the ill and the elderly the hard- est, and so far this season, at least eight pediatric flu deaths have been con- firmed across the United States. Avera Medical Group physicians are reminding every patient to be diligent and to remember how these illnesses spread. "This time of year, it seems like everyone is sick. We've seen many cases of strep throat, influenza, no- rovirus and the common cold, and all spread eas- ily because everyone is in- doors, close to each other;' said Dr. Daniel Florey, Ave- ra Medical Group Family Medicine Tyler. "Most of these illnesses are spread by droplets, moving invis- ibly from one person to another. Since most viral illnesses are contagious for up to 24 hours before symptoms even start, peo- ple who don't even know they are sick can spread it widely." "There are ways to keep healthy. I advise all of my patients that are eligible to get flu shots in October, because even when it isn't a perfect match against the flu, people who get it have shorter illnesses and less likelihood of severe illness "We've seen many cases of strep throat, influenza, norovirus and the common cold, and all spread easily because everyone is indoors, close to each other ." - Dr. Florey than those who don't;' Dr. Florey said. "For vulner- able patients, who might have immune deficiencies like cancer, diabetes, or others, the elderly, young children, or people with lung problems such as asthma or COPD, the flu can be very serious. Re- member, even healthy people can die of influ- enza, but immunization is especially important for these groups of patients." Dr. Timothy Mok, Avera Medical Group Family Medicine Marshall, states, "Influenza has been on the rise. There are antiviral ap- proaches that can be used for patients diagnosed with influenza A or B and at risk of complications. One example is Tamiflu, which is an antiviral medi- cation prescribed within the first 48 hours of onset of symptoms" Dr. Mok said every bit of prevention helps. Influ- enza is highly contagious, therefore, frequent hand washing, disinfecting sur- faces that may have germs and avoiding direct con- tact with those who are sick - all can help. "Influenza can be spread as early as one day prior to showing symptoms, and people who test posi- tive for influenza may be contagious for a full seven days after symptoms have started," he said. Dr. Mok and Dr. Flo- rey agree that it takes a communi- ty-wide ef- fort to fight back, especially during a bad flu season like the one we're now facing. "People should stay away from other people when they are sick, at least until symptoms be- gin to improve;' Dr. Florey said. "Wear a facemask and wash your hands fre- quently to keep from get- ting other people sick. If you are healthy, use hand sanitizer and stay a few feet away from people who aren't feeling well. Strep throat needs antibi- otics to cure, and in cer- tain cases there are anti- vitals that can shorten the course of influenza, but there is no magic pill that will make a cold go away. It's important to see your doctor early, especially if you have a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, body aches or both." Lancers show number one rating style by beating Lady Knights By Jim Kopel Tribute Sports The Canby Lancers showed why they are rated number one in the north half of the section as the upcoming tournament is fast approaching. The Lancers, on their home floor, would shoot over 60 percent, 32 of 53 attempts from the field, in beat- ing the Lady Knights by a score of 80-29. The Lady Knights would only score eight points in the second half. Mya Christensen would hit a 3-pointer at the nine- minute mark of the first half to show a score of 19 to 10 for the home team. That was as close as the visiting Knights would get in this one. Mya would nail two more 3-pointers in the second quarter as the intermission score was 45-21. The Lancers, somewhat hot from the field in the first half, were very hot in the second half. They just never missed, espe- cially from the sight of an RTR fan. Every loose ball seemed to end up with a Lancer. Brooke Thomsen and Tina Haroldson would each score four points, that being the eight points of the second half. Mya Christensen, mak- ing her three 3-pointers and one free throw, did manage double digit scor- Mya Christensen Rylie Hess had four rebounds for the Lady Knights. Courtney Pe- tersen and lackie Dressen each had one block in the game. Free throws showed the Lancers making 8 of 12. The Knights were 3 of 8. One stat that was very evident or missing for the Lady Knights was the steal stat. The Knights had NO steals in the game. The Lady Knights. 5-21 for the regular season, will open the new season this coming Saturday. Yes. the tevideo. Game time will be about 2:30 p.m. LQPV has the number two seed, right behind Canby. Go get 'em Ladies! The B and C Teams from RTR had better success in Canby on Friday. Jayda Jo- hanson would hit a crucial basket plus a free throw to lead the B Team to a 36-31 victory. Brooke Thomsen got the girls on the prop- er side of the board with eight points in the second half to give the girls a fight- ing chance. The halftime score was 15 to 11 for the Lancers. lohansen led the Knights in scoring with nine points while Thoms- on had the eight. Catherine Vogt had six points and six boards. The C Team used a strong second half to beat the young Lancers by a score of 40-29. layda lo- hansen would get the young Knights in the prop- er mood for the second half by hitting a 3-point buzzer beater to end the first half. That great shot gave the team the lead at intermission with the score being 17-16. Doing the heavy scoring for the team were Rylie Hess and Kylea Baartman as these two girls scored 12 and 11 points, respectively. Shawna Thomsen made sure the proper score stayed on the proper side of the scoreboard by scor- ing four points down the Helping to understand your body Hungry for Health By Christopher D.

Last Tuesday the Ladies traveled to Minneota to once again try to beat those Vikings. The results were the same. The Vi- kings were quicker, more aggressive and just more experienced as they would jump to a 54-20 halftime lead on their way to a con- vincing 79-44 win. Hallie Lingen tried to keep the Knights in the game early with the first three points of the game as the score was only 6 to 3 for the home team. How- ever, soon the score was 17 to 3 before Chloe Hess finally stopped the bleed- ing with a basket. Lingen would hit another basket before the Vikings started another little run. Brittney Thooft added a bucket at the nine-minute mark to make the score 32-11. The Lady Knights were more competitive in the second half. The Vikings only outscored the Lady Knights 25 to 24 during this period of the game. Tina Haroldson did most of her work the second half with 10 points and six rebounds. Lingen added seven more points while Alexis Nelson would chip in with five points. Coach Fredrickson had these comments about the game. "We definitely had more fun playing the game in the second half. Hopefully in the future, it doesn't take us getting down 30 points for us to start playing a little bet- Hallie Lingen Maddi Muenchow ter." Hallie Lingen led the Lady Knights in the scor- ing department with 12 points. Lingen also had three steals while Harold- son led the rebounding with nine boards. Lingen, Courtney Petersen and lonni Biren each helped the rebounding with four boards. Haroldson also had four assists. The rebounding favored the Vikings, 39-35. Free throw shooting favored the Vikings as they would connect on 12 of 21 tries. The Knights were only 7 of 23. The Knights committed 27 turnovers while the Vi- kings were giving the ball back only16 times. The Lady Knights also played the Lakeview Lak- ers on the previous Friday. Down by only three points at the break, 29-26, the Knights saw the Lakers outscore them in the sec- ond half to win by a score of 57-43. Tina Haroldson and Mya Christensen led the scoring in this one as they would score 11 and 10 points, respectively. The Ladies went to the free throw line 37 times, making 15 of them.
